An Apex Court bench headed by Justice TS Thakur said it would hear the matter on Thursday as senior counsel Kapil Sibal told that information from the CBI reached the West Bengal government and the accused much later than other people.

Probing the scam that came to light in April 2014, CBI and Enforcement Directorate have questioned many Trinamool Mps.

Sibal told the Court that while handing over the probe to CBI, it had said that it would not monitor this but could do so if the need arose.

As Sibal mentioned the matter for further hearing on Thursday, the Court asked him the reason for the urgency.

Sibal said, "Information is reaching other parties much earlier than the West Bengal government as there was a leakage".
